Posted:cheers. really clear videos to see what is going on in them. Maybe in the cradle and butterfly video briefly explain how to do the cradle (complete noob on cj) but can definately see how you can build on the basics you have shown already.

Peace

Posted:As a fire performer who has recently gotten into contact juggling, I would absolutly love to see some more fire CJ videos.

And, btw, your two videos provide the clearest explanation and video of the moves that I've seen around. PLEASE keep them coming! And get HOP to add them to their tutorial page! That way you get credits, and we get awesome videos. You know, seeing how they sell CJ balls, you'd figure there'd be some CJ videos!

Posted:Not trying to detract from HoP at all, but anyone interested in contact juggling should check out contactjuggling.org

Posted:eca, thanks for the reference! I'd found that yesterday actually, but wasn't sure if we should post it. I'm fairly sure it doesn't matter, as like I previously mentions, there's no Contact Juggling references on the site yet.

I've seen a few videos, but TechSpec, yours are my favorite so far! Sorry to hear about the ball!

Posted:I have a question for you: I'm using a 75mm Acrylic ball, and just for the life of me can't get the ball to stop in the crook of my arm for the elbow stall. Is this easier with a bigger ball? Should I be learning with a bigger ball?

Thanks again, btw, these videos are amazing!

Posted:As far as learning to contact juggle the larger balls are invaluable to use for learning ((though i reccomend using a ball specificly made for learnig how to do shoulders roll since youll drop it......a lot....)). The one you see in the videos is a four inch ball from Dube. I will keep videos coming since I know people are reading.

Posted:For beginners, I'd suggest a 100mm stage ball or sil-x. Acrylics, albeit pretty, scratch/chip really easily, ruining the illusion for isolations, plus they won't break things (read: tv, computer, fish tank, cat) as easily.
